As usual, the French Revolution comes into this. The domaine is a collection of vineyards once belonging to the French royal family (hence the Conti, whihch is a princedom awarded to younger sons to keep them busy) and some more vineyards ‘obtained’ by a Napoleonic general after the revolution. But to cut a long story short, somehow one domaine managed to wrangle together the largest parts of the very best few vineyards in Burgundy. As a result, the domaine is the premier domaine in the whole of Burgundy and, therefore, are producers of many of the most valuable bottles of wine in the world.
